Nick Cannon Says Mariah Carey Is Too Expensive For ‘American Idol’


With the super recent departure of ‘American Idol’ judges Steven Tyler and Jennifer Lopez, it seems the show’s execs have been eyeing another diva to take a seat: Mariah Carey.

Though rumors of replacements have yet to be confirmed, Mimi’s hubby Nick Cannon told TMZ that ‘A.I.’ would have to shell major bucks in order to land the “Obsessed” singer.

“I don’t know if they can afford Mariah Carey,” Cannon said. “That’s a lot of money. If they gave JLo $20 million, they might have to double that!”

It’s nice to know he can put a hefty price on his wifey.
